Heart Disease is described as an investigative
and clinical journal of cardiovascular medicine devoted to providing multidisciplinary,
in-depth coverage on cardiovascular therapeutics. The editor-in-chief is William
H. Frishman, chair of the department of medicine at New York Medical College.
Michael H. Gewitz, also of New York Medical College, is associate editor.
Among the 84 members of the editorial board, there is a concentration
of representation from New York (25), but the rest of the country is also
well covered, and there are four international members (two from Canada and
two from Italy). The board includes recognized leaders in the field, such
as Valentin Fuster, past president of the American Heart Association, a leading
authority on heart and blood vessel diseases, and Eric Topol, author of the
definitive Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine.
